Setting Yourself Up for Success

We live in a world where the demands for your time and attention seemingly never stop. Perhaps now more than ever, being selective about how you spend your time and where you direct your focus is critically important, particularly when it comes to establishing yourself in the profession of your dreams. If you plan to make a name for yourself in an important and exciting career, obtaining a high score on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is one of the first steps towards professional success. Performing well on this examination is the best way to gain admittance to prestigious graduate schools, which is where you will build the connections and gain the experiences you need to create a dynamic and rewarding professional future. Whether you recently graduated from college or are an experienced professional looking to take your career to new heights, Manhattan Review offers unsurpassed GRE tutoring programs created to exceed your ambitions and put you in control of your future.

Dedicated, High-Quality Instructors

Manhattan Review is known throughout the test prep industry for its very selective hiring process of instructors and tutors. While we hire only those professional educators who have obtained their own high test scores, we expect them to expertly guide their students to obtaining high GRE scores of their own. We are a boutique test prep company and as such, we dedicate significantly more resources than most test prep firms to our hiring process. Ultimately, we only hire those tutors with both superb test-taking and teaching skills. We are fully aware that mastering an exam and teaching others how to master an exam are two very different skills, and we are committed to hiring only those tutors who can effectively teach test-related information in ways that can be personalized to the learning needs of each and every student.

Hiring a GRE Online Tutor – Advantages & Disadvantages

For many years, Manhattan Review has offered not only in-person preparation courses and tutoring, but also online test prep resources. With the start of the global pandemic in 2019, the world experienced an unprecedented shift towards the utilization of online learning options. While Manhattan Review will continue to offer in-person tutoring sessions in locations where there is significant demand, we also encourage potential students to consider the advantages and possible disadvantages of online learning to determine if virtual GRE preparation is an option that might work for them. Here are a few advantages to virtual tutoring that are consistently shared with us by our online students:

More time to study

Travelling to a physical location is time consuming. Whether you are taking the New York subway, the London Tube, or driving through LA, getting from one place to another is an inconvenient—and frequently expensive—undertaking. Many students are thrilled to avoid wasted travel time and instead spend their limited time focusing on what matters most: prepping for the GRE. With our online tutoring options, you can study in the comfort and convenience of your own home. Alternatively, many students enjoy learning at their favorite café or even from their place of work. Wherever you learn best, the online tutoring programs at Manhattan Review make it easy to prepare for the GRE while saving you time and reducing unnecessary travel-related expenses and stress.

Increased flexibility

We all have busy, complicated schedules, whether that involves full-time work, leisure activities, visiting family and friends, taking college courses, or running errands. Preparing for the GRE by trying to fit another in-person commitment into your schedule can be difficult and sometimes simply impossible. With Manhattan Review's online tutoring options, students can take charge of their test preparation by studying when it's most convenient for them. You can schedule sessions with your tutor when it works best for your schedule, allowing you to stay on track with your test preparation. Your tutor is readily available to answer questions, both during live instructional sessions and via email in between sessions. Our online private tutoring packages are a perfect fit for busy students who work or study full-time but who are still serious about attaining an elite GRE score and attending a leading graduate school program.

With Manhattan Review's online learning options, you can prepare for the GRE at times that work best for you. Students learn best when they are able to focus without distraction, and we are proud to offer online tutoring options to ensure you are prepared to obtain the highest test score possible. 

While there is much to like about online tutoring options, there may also be some potential disadvantages that are worth considering. These are some of the concerns that potential students mention to us:

Lack of Social Interaction

There is something comfortingly familiar about in-person interaction. It can be a very enjoyable experience to sit across from someone who is invested in your learning and to share space with a tutor giving you their undivided attention. We understand that this desirable feeling and style of interaction can be difficult to replicate online.

Having said that, it is very easy for you and your tutor to get to know one another within the context of a virtual environment. You and your tutor can write on a shareable whiteboard just as you would both write on a piece of paper in a physical location. With Manhattan Review's online private tutoring options, you also have the freedom to choose the tutor who works best for your specific prep needs regardless of where they happen to be located, which will only improve your GRE performance and result in a higher score on the day of your exam.

Dependance on Technology

Many potential students express concern that they will not be able to install the required software to participate in an online tutoring program. While this was an important concern years ago, technology has become so stable and easy to install that this is no longer a concern anymore. At Manhattan Review we use Zoom, a popular online teaching platform many participants are already familiar with from work or academic studies. So, while there were legitimate concerns about online learning technology years ago, this is no longer an issue as systems become increasingly stable every year. You can prepare for the GRE using our online tutoring options anywhere you have a stable internet connection, and our tutors are eager to support you in attaining your own impressive test score, certain to open important academic doors.

Our GRE Prep Courses are highly customizable, and Manhattan Review has many options available to tailor preparation exactly to the student's needs. Therefore, the best way to proceed is to speak to one of our friendly and highly regarded GRE specialists. Requesting an appointment is easy, please simply fill out the GRE Prep Consultation Request Form, and we will be in touch right away. And yes, this in-depth consultation is completely free and without any obligations, so get your prep started today!

I would like to let you know that I took the GRE on Monday, December 6th and earned a score of 1200 (600 verbal, 600 quantitative). I think that I did very well on the essay portion of the test as well but won't receive those scores in the mail for a couple weeks or so. I would like to thank my instructor (George S.) and Manhattan Review for helping me to increase my score so much (I got a 1050 the first time I took the GRE in 2002) Thank you very much.
